When you should not be scrapping

that's when you really, and I mean, drop-dead-seriously kinda really, really wanna scrap. Yes. I know that now. Speaking from experience. This is not the first time too. *sigh* What's a girl to do? :)

So I ignored the suitcase-packing for the Gold Coast trip, that I was supposed to do and scrapped. Mighty happy that made me too! *grins* Maybe I'll resume packing after this post, maybe I'd rather go to bed and snuggle with Nidhi who is already fast asleep. Maybe I'll just play that toss-whatever-is-in-the-pile-of-laundered-clothes game, two hours before departure. LOL. Or maybe, I'll let the girls pack their own clothes. Should be fun!

The sweet people over at Studio Calico sent me yumminess from their HomeFront Collection to play with. A total surprise, really. Since they didn't even email me before. My heart skipped a beat when I opened that box because part of me thinking 'oh shoot, what an unfortunate shipping mistake. lovely goodies, but not mine :(' because I didn't order papers and bellies. I ordered some stamps and was expecting my stamps in that box. The other part of me, anyway, thought ' well, let's email them and ask. I might just be the intended recipient! (well, a girl can dream - i told myself)

*insert heart thumping, suspense music here*

Then Lorie replied! She said those are for me! Me! Me! Me! I thought my face would crack with all the smiling I was doing that day! Thank you Studio Calico! (even though thank you doesn't seem enough)

Rambling over, I think. Now on to my layout :)

special c23

c23 - She's my friend. My special friend. :) Hope she likes this one.

close up 1

SC stamps - Schooltime ABC Border and Mini Picture Frame, HomeFront letter stickers, Kaiser Pearls.

Just for the record, I adore that boy on the bicycle. ADORE. Okay? :) Basic Grey Rub Ons.

SC - Nadiya alpha stamps, embossed with American Crafts ZING! in Wave. Photo mat is Hambly Mod Circles in Brown.

close up 3

Just full frontal view of my most favorite part of the layout because I'm cool like that. *grins* (like real, eh?) LOL.

So we'll be getting a new family member this Saturday. Spanking new brother-in-law. They (my mom and sister) put me in charge of the wedding cake. *gasps* I am freakin' out, big time. No, I'm not gonna bake the damn cake. LOL. I wouldn't dare to. We ordered plain-2 tiered Chocolate Indulgence and I need to dress it up. So tempted to just cover the cake with pretty papers. LOL. I know I'm gonna go with simple and classy. Wish me luck!

Well, of course, they sent you stuff to play with... & of course, you delivered! Adorable LO!

And I always scrap when I should be packing. I've come to the decision that if I forget to pack something, I'm just going to have to buy when I get there! LOL
